EA Announces Closed Alpha For 'Anthem'

Anthem Closed Alpha Begins Week

Anthem is expected to release for the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on February 22, 2019. The test will not be available for the entirety of the two days, as there will instead by "multiple sessions" spread across the weekend. Since "Anthem" is an online-only game, EA is using the alpha as a means of testing its server capacity, as well as a means of testing the game itself with fans.

To sign up, simply head to the EA Community Playtesting webpage, sign in with an EA account, choose a platform and when you'd like to play the alpha, and submit.

You can get on a wait list if sessions for a particular device are full, but there is no guarantee that you'll be able to join the play-test since it's first-come, first-served. These community playtests are "more limited" than what EA originally wanted to share in pre-launch demos, so there will only be a small number of slots available for the alpha. "Once the Community Playtest has started, check your email to see if we've sent you instructions to download the Anthem Closed Alpha client".

If you want to participate in the Closed Alpha, you'll first have to sign up for it.

Bioware is now hard at work preparing Anthem for its February launch but as with all "live service" games, plenty of player testing needs to take place beforehand in order to squash issues.

The alpha will be available for you to play from December 8-9.

A messy start to December: Snow, Rain, Ice this weekend
Most of the week looks storm free as a coastal storm will look to develop too far south midweek to have any big impacts right now. The unseasonably cool conditions will linger throughout the work week, with afternoon highs staying in the 30s and 40s.

From there, you're pretty much set and ready to jump into the alpha, but make sure you're quick - "places are limited". EA has announced an upcoming closed alpha, and sign-ups for it are now live ahead of the test kicking off next week.

Choose your platform, and let BioWare and EA know when you want to play.
